Hi everyone -- I'm really excited to announce The Start! It's a 4-week online bootcamp for those serious about learning how to create and pitch a startup (or have an idea they want to test). The Start was designed based on my years of volunteer work with orgs such as IPN and Thiel Fellowship. Think of it like a "startup simulation" -- you'll take an idea through validation and pitching, get paired up with co-founders, and work with coaches that have experience with YC, Techstars, & a16z. If you know someone who has been thinking about creating their own startup (or you yourself are interested), learn more and apply at When you apply, mention Product Hunt for 15% off. The Start aims to teach discipline and self-sufficiency, make students feel some of the highs and lows of being an entrepreneur, and to help them gain skills and mindset needed to take the leap. This is a true passion project for me. If you have any questions, please ask away :)
